Who were the hit parade dancers??
They played such a large part in the show but got no billing!! What a crock!!I particularly like the one who is, or looks like Carolyn Jones,short Black hair. ! Who was she ? Dorothy Colins is a complete DOLL and Giselle is just a jewel! I am watching these shows for the first time !! No wonder people were more friendly then! They could sit and relax to pure entertainment!
